Re: Decision on the processor for my first build.
don't get sandy bridge stuff yet, Most all of it got recalled because intel's chipset was shocking. Personally i'd stick with the 1090T, it would run circles around the 2600k.
Use the 1090T then get Bulldozer if you feel you need too.
and @ xtropx, like i said the Sandy bridge chipsets were naff on release and probably still are, i'd wait for Bulldozer. AMD get it right alot more often IMHO.
